Burke Museum says
How do you 3D print a life-size Columbian Mammoth skeleton? By scanning one bone at a time!

Stop by the Burke this Saturday, May 21, between 10 AM – 4 PM to watch as University of Washington students in Steven Weidner's mechanical engineering class take 3D scans of a Columbian Mammoth skull in the Burke's collection. These scans will be used as blueprints for a 3D printed model of the skull—part of a larger project to print missing parts of a Columbian Mammoth so a complete skeleton can be displayed in the New Burke Museum's galleries.

See in real-time how scanners create a 3D replica on a projector in the gallery, talk to students about the project, and see 3D replicas of other mammoth bones and Burke artifacts that have been printed to-date.
